Happy New Year!

A very feliz año nuevo to y'all! I hope that hangovers have dissipated and that resolutions are still intact thus far!

Looking back, 2010 surely was an amazing year for us. To think of all the things we did is exhausting: we survived an exploding volcano, kayaked in Patagonia, swam with sharks in the Galapagos...I could go on for quite awhile. 2011 has big boots to fill, but we've also got some big things on the horizon that we are very excited about. We will share it all with you soon!

Pete and I rang in the new year with very little fan fare. As much as I had hoped being on the island would magically heal my foot, it hasn't happened (I think I enjoyed watching Lost a little too much). The effort to get all dolled up and go out on the town only to have to return in a couple of hours due to swelling did not seem worth it. So, we spent it quietly at home, as we have been doing most days and nights, waiting for the magical healing fairies to arrive. Every day I get stronger and stronger, and soon I hope to report on more then just what boring, house-bound losers we are.

One brave day last week, we did venture out to visit the Caribbean - I couldn't resist the crystal blue water any longer. It was a very slow walk on the beach and I paid for it for several hours later, but it was worth it. I think that by these pictures, you will agree!

This beach is only a 3 minute drive from our house, and we had it entirely to ourselves for most of the afternoon, as it is far off the tourist path and only used by locals. We will spend many happy days here in the future, I am sure!

  1. Happy new year to all. Hey guys, are you ready to celebrate this new year in a new style and thrill. Please tell me your plans for this new year. Me too is making some trip out somewhere but still did not decided. If you have some ideas, please let me know.

    Along with that, one thing i would like to mention here, your post has just forced me to choose a place which is situated in arms of nature. I hope there i will be able to find such a place which can give the peace of mind. What about some places in Africa. I have heard they are really nice.
